Whether you are looking for an action camera or a video camera for sale on Junk Mail, there are plenty of options to choose from in South Africa. Both the GoPro and the Volkano action camera are good options. You can even opt for a top quality Panasonic or Canon video camera.
Video Camera vs Action Camera
Firstly, you may be wondering what the difference between an action and a video camera actually is.
Action cameras are smaller, simpler and more durable than video cameras. Action cameras allow you to capture life from a different perspective. Unlike a video camera, an action type camera can be attached to helmets, surfboards and even vehicles.
Their lens produces high-definition, point-of-view footage and the nature of this footage has made action cameras a popular choice when capturing images of extreme sports.
TV companies use action cameras in situations where a traditional camera would not be able to capture the footage that they need. At the forefront of this sector is the GoPro camera. The distinctive design of these cameras and their reliable performance add to their appeal.
The Gopro Hero is a well-known GoPro action camera which has a box shape design. Another option is the iON Air Pro which has a bullet style design. Whether you decide to find a video camera for sale or an action camera will depend on the footage you want to film.
If you want to record footage while you are skydiving or surfing then an action camera is a good choice.
The functionality of an action camera vs a video camera
Designed with convenience in mind action cameras come with less features than video cameras. Typically action cameras will have only three buttons with a small LCD screen that displays essential information.
While a video camera typically has a screen where you can view your frame, action type cameras generally don’t. Video cameras usually offer a selection of lenses while action cameras have a fixed wide-angle lens. The focal length for action cameras ranges between 17 mm and 20 mm and the action type cameras generally have a protective covering which keeps them safe from the elements and is waterproof in some cases.
Action cameras are available that can withstand extreme environment conditions that regular video cameras can’t handle. They also come with different mounting options so that hands-free operation is possible.
